Unveiling the Solar System’s Mysteries

The reverse features an exquisite depiction of Nicolaus Copernicus, set against a backdrop of his famed heliocentric theory. Adding to its uniqueness are the meteorite inserts, sourced from celestial bodies like the Moon, Mars, Mercury, Vesta, and Moldavite tectite from Earth, symbolising the coin’s connection to the wider universe.

Exclusive and Limited Edition

With a mintage limited to just 500 pieces globally, this coin is a rare treasure for collectors. Each coin is housed in a specially designed, coloured case and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity, ensuring its value and rarity.

A Tribute to History and Science

The obverse displays the Coat of Arms of Burkina Faso, complemented by inscriptions of the issuing country and face value. This coin is not just a collector’s piece but a homage to the relentless pursuit of knowledge and the unending quest to understand our place in the universe.

Celebrate Nicolaus Copernicus’s legacy and the advancements in our cosmic understanding with this remarkable silver coin, a must-have for enthusiasts of astronomy, history, and numismatics.
